Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip
Thanks for the replys - helps to stop this thing from breaking my heart and hurting my brains!
mmm... err, ok then tightening the flower nut increases the preload on the clutch spring.
I took the clutch cover back off and it's my little gear that sits further out than the big gear -maybe I belted the clutch too hard getting it off when I replaced the clutch and bevel wheel as the old one wasn't spinning true(now I think maybe I just needed to file down the chuck key a bit to solve the problem!)
Any way she works now, the bevel wheel spins almost true & contacts the small gear across the full width of the gear teeth(but only just), and the clutch doesn't slip at all so I'm gonna stop playing with it and ride it!
